The Bucks are interested in signing PF Erik Murphy, who was recently released by the Bulls.

D.J. Stephens' 10-day contract is expiring and the Bucks won't re-sign him, so Murphy could come aboard for the rest of the season on a temporary deal. No matter where he lands, Murphy's role will be too limited for fantasy appeal.

The Bulls waived rookie PF Erik Murphy on Thursday.

Murphy played under three minutes per game in 24 appearances, and he was redundant on the roster with Carlos Boozer and Taj Gibson both healthy. It sounds like Chicago may replace him with veteran swingman Ronnie Brewer as they gear up for the playoffs.

Bulls rookie Erik Murphy suffered a broken nose in Tuesday's Summer League game against the Blazers.

Literally a tough break for the rookie, who could miss the rest of Summer League depending on the severity of the injury. However, he should be good to go by the start of training camp, if not before. He had 10 points and five boards before leaving the game.

Florida PF Erik Murphy was taken by the Bulls with the 49th pick in the NBA Draft.

The Bulls are loaded at PF and Murphy will just be trying to make the team. However, he can shoot it, including from downtown, which will help his chances of sticking in Chicago.
